Freestone winemaker knows you can’t force wine (US)
What’s the trick of making great Pinot Noir? Letting Mother Nature call the shots. “The trick, in my humble opinion — and I learned this working in Burgundy — is not to force the wines to be something they don’t naturally want to be,” said Theresa Heredia, winemaker of Freestone winery. Heredia is the winemaker behind our wine-of-the-week winner, the Fogdog, 2009 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir at $35, reports Press Democrat.
